Overview

The current Nissan Frontier has been with us since 2005, an eternity in automotive years. Plenty of buyers keep coming back to the midsize pickup year after year, and we won't quibble with their decision. The Frontier continues to offer solid value, rugged good looks, and abundant trim choice.

What's New for 2017

A new S Work Truck package furnishes a spray-in bedliner, bed rail caps, splash guards, and rubber floor mats. Base models switch from a chrome rear bumper to a body-color one.

Choosing Your Nissan Frontier

The standard engine is a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder making 152 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. It comes paired with a six-speed manual transmission on 4x2 models only. A five-speed automatic is optional or standard on the 4x4. Only the S and SV King Cab models offer the smaller engine. An available 4.0-liter, V6 engine produces 261 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque. Here, you have a choice of a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic transmission. Standard equipment includes steel wheels, a tailgate spoiler, a four-speaker audio system, and rear jump seats in the King Cab.

Nissan Frontier

S

Choose the base Frontier S and you’ll discover two very different models. The King Cab is powered by the four-cylinder engine, while the Crew Cab gets the V6. The S Preferred package (optional on the King Cab, standard on the Crew Cab) adds air conditioning, a four-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, cruise control, a USB port, and SIRI Eyes Free. Six-spoke 16-inch steel wheels are standard.

Nissan Frontier

SV

At the SV level, the Frontier is equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels and a sliding rear window. Keyless entry, SiriusXM satellite radio, Bluetooth, power accessories, and front map lights are included. Four-wheel drive is available with both cab configurations. Crew Cab models offer a Moonroof package and a Value Truck package, the latter adding a rearview monitor, rear sonar, dual climate control, heated front seats, fog lights, a spray-on bedliner, a sliding bed extender, a tow hitch receiver, and a security system.

Nissan Frontier

Desert Runner

You get the look of a 4x4 on a two-wheel drive truck when you choose the Desert Runner. This model is powered by the V6 engine, paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. Bilstein off-road performance shocks, a satin chrome grille, and bedside decals are included.

Nissan Frontier

PRO-4X

The look of the Desert Runner becomes a 4x4 reality in the PRO-4X model. Crew Cab models provide your choice of the six-speed manual or automatic transmission. A locking differential, skid plates, a rearview camera, zoned climate control, and navigation are included.

Nissan Frontier

SL

Available only as a Crew Cab, the top-of-the-line SL brings in 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, body-color side moldings, and step rails. Cabin upgrades include leather seats, a Rockford Fosgate audio system, and heated front seats. A Moonroof package is available.

CarsDirect Tip

The Nissan Frontier’s older design translates into favorable pricing, especially on the base model. But it's hard to ignore the capable V6 and 4x4 combo, which gives this truck strong off-road credibility. The PRO-4X trim provides everything you could want in a midsize pickup truck at a price that undercuts all key competitors.
